    Simpsons Comics and Stories Butterfinger Mini Ed (1993) 1

    Simpsons Comics and Stories Butterfinger Mini Comic Edition (1993) is a giveaway (despite the $2.50 cover price) variant of the full-size comic, with all the stories and ads that appear in the regular edition. The cool thing about this small-sized No. 1 is that it was found only in packages of Butterfinger candy bars. That's why it's so small. It may have come out BEFORE the actual No. 1 issue hit the stands, which would make this mini comic edition the first appearance of the Simpsons. As with the full-sized edition, stories include "Lo, There Shall Come a Bartman" (co-plot by Cindy Vance, script, layouts, and inks by Steve Vance, inks by Bill Morrison and Mike Anderson), "Bring Me the Head of El Barto" (script and art by Morrison), and "Maggie's Excellent Adventure" (co-story and layouts by Steve Vance, co-story by Cindy Vance, finished art by Ray Supreme). Cover price $2.50.
